Jury service plays an important role in the New South Wales justice system. Juries are used to ensure that legal verdicts are impartial and in line with community standards of behaviour.

The jury roll is a list of names of people, randomly selected by computer, from the NSW electoral roll. Anyone registered to vote in NSW can be included on the jury roll and called up for jury service. 

The first step in the jury selection process is a Notice of Inclusion. If you have received a notice it means that during the next 12 months you may receive a jury summons to attend court. The jury summons is posted to you and usually sent out a month before you have to attend court.

If you'd like to find out more about jury service and the role of a jury, you can do this online at the Courts and Tribunals website.
